Thai gold


Recommended Posts

Hi. I am going to leave Pattaya for 3 months. I would like to make a present for my wife and i want to buy a present with gold. She is not Thai girl. Just last time when my wife was in Pattaya she could see a lot of shops of gold. And like any other woman she wanted to buy something for herself. But one time I heard how she whispered that Thai gold is not good quality and has other color. And now I can't  decide to buy or not to buy. Is it a good quality? And will it a good present for not Thai girl? May be anyone bring clarity in this issue? Thanks a lot in advance.

I've not seen decent prices for gold in LOS, the margins charged (particularly for a farang who just walks into a random store) are much higher than the US.


Most Thai gold is 96.5% pure (a little more than 23k), this is an uncommon ratio in the west and you may encounter challenges if you were to sell outside of Asia. (BTW, the same holds true for trying sell western gold - either 99.99% [Canadian Maples, Suisse - 24k] or 91.67 [Krugerrand - 22k].)


IMHO you will do much better purchasing from a reputable dealer in the west - the VAT rules in Europe may make this a little more difficult. I understand Dubai is a large market.


One final caution, Chinese fakes are flooding the markets (actually Chinese are making fake everything these days - food, electronics, golf clubs, Viagra....), you should be very careful when making any large purchase!


Good luck!

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
